Koppikar Road, one of the major shopping destinations of Hubballi City is being re-built. Many citizens and businessmen were demanding to improve the condition of the road for a long time.
Hubballi Dharwad Smart City Limited (HDSCL) is developing Koppikar Road under Package 2 of the Smart Street Scapes and Junction Improvements project.
However, many citizens took to Twitter and expressed their concerns over the substandard works being undertaken by the HDSCL.
Ashraf Ali Bashir Ahmed said that “The road work undertaken by HDSCL isn’t smart at all. Look at the haphazard way the pavers are laid and the interior quality of the asphalt being laid”.
When we compare the same road improvement projects undertaken by Bengaluru Smart City Limited, we can clearly see the difference in the quality of construction.
As per the plan, Koppikar Road alongside Coen Road, Station Road, Victoria Road, Broadway, etc will have Underground ducts for Utility pipelines and Electric Cables, Underground Drainage System, Wide Footpaths, and LED Streetlights.
